Tortilla Origami

Working with 'thick paper'

Instead of paper, consider tortillas or better yet thin Chinese pancakes for simple fold-and-bake origami creations. I can imagine a growing portfolio of designs suitable to this edible paper, complete with methods of supporting floppy structures on fire brick, tiles or other fireproof oddments until stiffened with baking. Some day, maybe, a crane?

       Only rice paper creases and is thin enough for origami.

       Actually the Mongolian, Chinese and other oriental 'tortilla' recipes are probably the best. They're 'paper thin' and some of 'em are huge. As for regular flour tortillas a moistened one would be the best place to start..

       Fresh tortillas should be creasible.   

       Bravo! +

       //Tortillas are round. Origami paper is square.// Well, clearly that makes the whole scheme impossible. If only there were some way to make square tortillae, or to do origami with round materials. *sigh* another door slams in the collective face of humanity. [+]
